I adore this poem. Like you, I come back to it and back to it - especially when prayer seems to make no sense. It is a glimpse of possibility. Thank you

Hi Jim! I recalled your post on Herbert's Prayer (1) as I started reading Dennis Lennon's Turning the Diamond: Eploring George Herbert's Images of Prayer, this evening. It was recommended by a close friend on Monday and Amazon delivered today. Can I be so bold as to suggest that you would like it very much indeed!

And as I recommended to my friend in return, there is an gorgeous setting of it to music by Roxanne Panufnik, called Prayer (predictably) and sung by The Sixteen, available as a download at iTunes and Amazon for 0.79p.
